Whew! What a week . . . . Barricades! Coronavirus! Stock Market Slump! Real Snow! Thank heavens an oasis of calm exists for us every Saturday morning. We’ll sing the strife away, one note at a time. And now, a few words from co-chorister Tony Carlson:
A big THANK YOU to new choir member Denise Bedell whose company, Content Innovo, is the first sponsor of our Spring concert. That support will go a long way toward offsetting the cost of the Music Hall performance space for the concert. So please, take a moment to introduce yourself to Denise – she’s a soprano – and thank her for helping Hamilton Sings! sing. And check our her firm’s website at https://contentinnovo.com/, or you can find them on Twitter or Facebook @ContentInnovo. You never know when you might need expert content creation and strategic communications thinking.
As Oprah exhorts – lets get organized:
This Saturday February 29th rehearsal – At the very least, we’ll be working on Call My Name, Ballad of Sam Lawrence, Colour, Lily’s Fair and Carry On. Get thee to the hamiltonsings.ca members page for voice file study. Folks who are going to Mohawk on March 4th, please meet with Sue briefly following rehearsal. Deadline for submissions to the term concert poster initiative. Send your Hamilton digital photos to firstname.lastname@example.org, or post them to the HS!

Saturday March 14th – our normal rehearsal will take place at The Music Hall in New Vision Church, corner of Main West & McNab. 10 am sharp.
Saturday March 28th – Annual General Meeting (AGM) before our rehearsal, we NEED at least 50% plus 1 of active members for quorum. Time lines are: 9:30 – 9:45 chair setup, 9:45 – 10:15 AGM, 10:15 – 12:45 rehearsal. We’ll be sending a second email today with more detail regarding the meeting itself but at the very least, please do plan to attend. It’s your meeting, your community, your choir.
Sunday May 24th, 3pm – Hamilton Sings Hamilton Songs spring concert. The time has come to consider letting your near and dear know that they’re committed to being your audience that day. Additionally, outside volunteers are needed to help run the event while you choristers are on stage performing. Teens in need of volunteer hours, shiftless brothers-in-law who owe you a favour, retirees willing to donate their time – all are welcome to come forward.
Best to you all,
